About This Class
Ever wanted to learn how to make your own pasta? Do you stare longingly at delicious heaps of freshly made noodles in an Italian restaurant and realize it'll never match up to your store-bought rigatoni? Well, never fear—your first pasta lesson is here! My name is Sarah Lawrence and I’m a self-taught pasta expert. I’ll be walking you through the steps of mixing dough and rolling it out with a pasta machine, as well as cutting it into long ribbons (also known as fettucine). There’s even a bonus video at the end: how to make bowtie pasta!

This is a class from a non-professional and I applaud her for showing us other ways to accomplish pasta making with a minimum of frustration.
Hey there! My name is Sarah, and I've always been such a fan of pasta. When I was a kid, the cooks at my camp called me Noodles because I'd always come up to ask what was for lunch. My ideal (lazy) lunch is just a bowl of fettucine with some olive oil and fresh parmesan cheese. About six years ago, my roommate came home from the farmer's market with some homemade black pasta and I was floored with an epiphany—I could make this! I could make my favorite thing!
I've been making pasta by hand ever since. I love adding colors and shapes to the dough, pressing herbs in the sheets and making decorated pappardelle, or making stuffed pastas like tortellini and ravioli. I recently purchased a machine to make rigatoni and penne, which has been such a thrill.
I also love to draw—I just finished a 365 project where I draw shit every day. Literally: I draw the word "shit." Every day.
